John Hesterman
Dynasty League Football
 Christian Kirk has seen five or more targets in all but two games this season. While the defensive attention is going to be focused on trying to slow Deandre Hopkins down and bottle Kyler Murray up, this game has sneaky upside for the slot receiver role. Think of Kirk as a high-end WR3 play.
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
His targets may not be what they've been in the past, but he leads all players with 13 targets inside the 10-yard-line. It has felt like Brady is pushing the ball his way a bit more over the last few weeks, though that could be from the elevated volume, as his 20.0 percent target share over the last four games is nothing crazy. Evans still hasn't topped 77 yards since way back in Week 4, though touchdowns have carried him through, as he's scored in 8-of-11 games this year. The Chiefs have allowed just eight touchdowns on the season, which ranks as the fifth-fewest in the NFL. Everyone seems to be amazed when I tell them the Chiefs are one of the best in the league against wide receivers, as they expect tons of targets. That hasn't been the case, as they've seen just 18.3 targets per game to the position, which means there are just three teams who've seen less. While volume has been an issue, so has efficiency, as receivers have averaged just 7.61 yards per target (5th-lowest) and a touchdown every 22.9 targets (10th-least often). Through 10 games, the Chiefs have allowed just 10 top-36 wide receivers. The matchup is easier than last week against the Rams, so if you want to see the positives, there you go. Evans' touchdown prowess keeps him in the low-end WR2 range.It seems we've come back down to earth with Kirk, as he's finished with just eight catches for 77 yards in the last two weeks combined. There was a three-game stretch in there that made it mighty difficult to bench him, but he's no longer someone you must start, especially when you consider Murray's shoulder injury that could negatively impact his passing. The matchup against the Patriots is not a bad one, as evidenced by the league-leading 9.65 yards per target to wide receivers they've allowed. Kirk also leads the Cardinals starting wide receivers in average depth of target, so it helps to know the Patriots have allowed 14.52 yards per reception, which is second to only the Falcons. While Hopkins is sure to see Stephon Gilmore, that leaves Kirk with Jason McCourty. Of the 88 cornerbacks who've played at least 175 snaps in coverage, McCourty has allowed the second-most PPR points per target (2.48) in his coverage. The risk with Kirk comes back to Kyler Murray and his shoulder injury, as he needs to be able to get the ball downfield. Despite the Patriots being as bad as they are from an efficiency standpoint, they've allowed just 16 wide receivers to finish as top-48 options (12 of whom were top-36). That's not great when we view Hopkins as the No. 1 receiver for them. Kirk is in the WR4 conversation in a plus-matchup but there is concern, meaning he's not a must-start.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Evans has scored a TD in 3 of his last 4 games, he is settling in as WR3 in a tough matchup agains the Chiefs 5th ranked fantasy wide receiver defense.The Patriots are 15th against fantasy wide receivers. Kirk has only 8 receptions for 77 yards in his last two games after having three big games before that. He is a boom / bust WR3 on the road.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Kirk wasn't able to deliver a huge performance against the Seahawks last week, which was most likely due to Kyler Murray's shoulder injury. Assuming that Murray's good to go for this matchup, Kirk should get back to being targeted deep downfield. It's a favorable matchup for opposing WRs and Kirk could easily go off in this one. Start him as a high-end WR3 this week.
